Manchester United striker Romelu Lukaku wants 'more respect'

Manchester United striker Romelu Lukaku wants 'more respect'

Future Real Madrid goalkeeper Thibaut Courtois still believes that Chelsea have what it takes to finish in the top four of the Premier League this season, despite a 2-1 loss to Manchester United at Old Trafford that not only dropped the Blues out of the top four, but has set up a very tight finish where the team basically need to be flawless to make it back to the Champions League next season.

And the striker then turned provider as he set up Jesse Lingard for Manchester United's victor in the second half.

Lukaku has scored 27 times in 43 appearances for club and country this season.

The result, coupled with Tottenham's victory over Crystal Palace, left Chelsea in fifth place in the Premier League table, while United climbed back above Liverpool into second.

"I've been in the game for so long", Lukaku was quoted as saying by ESPNFC.

"They started very well and when they hit the post, I was looking at my players, what can we do, who can I blame, but it was such a lovely move, we couldn't stop it".

"But I think that's our (goal) first and foremost". I've been doing it for 10 years straight, so I think I've proved myself.

Still, it's a bit more fun than some of the other suggestions. I don't listen to (the criticism).

When asked what he must to do to receive the respect he believes he deserves, Lukaku said: "If I win". I want to win trophies.

"I'm really happy, we had a great attitude too", Jose Mourinho told reporters after the crucial win.

Upon scoring on Sunday, the narrative across the football world was pretty consistent- Lukaku finally scored in a big game/against a big club.

United paid £75m to sign Lukaku from Everton in last summer's transfer window. "I made the right choice for me", he said. I think you can get in a race with him but you can't out-muscle him. I started playing when I was 16.

"From a point of view of second, I would say just United".

"With our home form and our home fans, I think we will be confident".

"This was a big win and I hope the team will continue like this because every game in this league is a war".

The Serbia global added: "I don't want to speak about why I left Chelsea".
